Speaking weekend in Ado Ekiti, the State Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Hon Taiwo Olatunbosun noted that the arrest of one of the kidnappers was an opportunity for the security agencies to unveil all perpetrators of the crime and evil plot aimed at making the state ungovernable.

The Information Commissioner, who stressed the need for a thorough investigation by the police and other security agencies, said exposing those behind the dastardly act would curb the persistent attempts by some people to make life uncomfortable for people in the state.

Olatunbosun recalled that he had, on several instances, raised alarm on the clandestine activities of some groups individuals.

He said he wondered how a man that surrounded himself with thugs went around forcefully placing stickers on all vehicles that crossed his path unhindered, stressing that it was imperative that security agencies, as part of their statutory responsibilities, should curtail the blatant disregard to law and order, as well as protect the rights of the people in the state.
